What’s there in this film?.
Serious men (2020), The truth is I never expected this movie, but after seeing Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the poster the interest to see this movie increased, ok dudes, let’s go into the review.
The one-line story is, the hero is a government employee who is working as a personal assistant for the head in fundamental research organisation of India. The hero came to this position after a great difficulty because he was from a lower caste. So that his family should not suffer like himself, thinking that, he made his son famous by lying that he was a genius with an IQ of 160 though he was a slow learner.then the story moves on to focus on the chaos that ensues.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui, We know what his acting will be like, as usual in this film also he impresses the audience with his realistic acting.
Though there are few famous faces like Shweta Tripathi, Indira Tiwari carried the story realistic as much as she can.you can feel the vibe of middle-class couple in each and every scene of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Indira Tiwari as Ayyan Mani and Oja Mani.
The next biggest positive of this film is dialogues, I don’t know who is the dialogue writer for this film, but he did an amazing job in this film, in each dialogue of this film there is a little humour and deep comments are imposed.
Child artist Aakshath Das, just now only I know that this serious men (2020) is his second film because you can’t notice the single flaw in his acting, this for sure.
I’m a little bit surprised while seeing the Nassar in Hindi films because I’m a Tamil audience who rarely watches Hindi films.at first I thought he is the villain for this story by seeing his characterisation but the real villain is not him.watch that on the film.
Climax you can’t even guess though it ends like an ordinary ending, that’s my opinion about their climax, the truth is primitive minds like me can’t guess that.
What’s not there in this film?.
This is my thought, so don’t scold me for this. The first negative of this film is, Its logic mistakes.for instance,I still don’t know how he got that 160 IQ scoring and answer all the questions in tv interviews by hearing an answer for that questions from his dad via Bluetooth hearing machine, don’t think the audience are dumb like that interviewer and politicians.it could still have been better in digesting way that’s my conclusion about the negatives of this film.
Next is the screenplay, it may be boring for you if you are an action or masala movie lover but for these dramatic films, it is needed for the perfect fulfilment.
It fits Nawazuddin Siddiqui and few of this cast.
There is no doubt in this, all of them did an amazing job.
the hero is a government employee who is working as a personal assistant for the head in fundamental research organisation of India.
The hero came to this position after great difficulty because he was from a lower caste. So that his family should not suffer like himself, thinking that, he made his son famous by lying that he was a genius with an IQ of 160.
thus his boy became very popular in local and entire Mumbai, even Obama is also started to follow him on Instagram.
Realizing this, the politicians wanted to get the support of the hero’s son for their construction project of that entire area. At first, the people of the area objected to it but then agreed by the hero’s son words.
this deceptive work is known only to the hero and his boy, But the hero’s son tells his friend about their secrets of that cheatings. There is also another problem for the hero, this deceptive work of hero by his son also known to his head by arguing with his son about the science.
Then the story moves on to focus on the chaos that ensues.
Good film,i will certainly recommend this film for you and my visiters, only because of my man Nawazuddin Siddiqui, this is enough I think.
